Up to 12 inches falls across New Hampshire as first storm of February sweeps through
New Hampshire residents spent Wednesday digging out from the latest winter wallop that dropped up to 12 inches of snow across the state.
“It wasn’t as wet as they predicted, so it was a little easier to move,” said Phil Caron of Windham, who works for Rockingham County and spent part of the day plowing out the county nursing home in Brentwood.
One area that picked up more snow than expected was northern New Hampshire.
Traffic was relatively light on many roadways, as people heeded the warnings to stay off the roads. Some businesses decided not to open their doors, while others closed early.
“It’s kind of a nice, quiet and relaxing day,” she said.
Ray Gaboriault was called in to help with the snow-blowing around the Exeter Town Offices. He used to be a mail carrier in Berlin, so he’s used to working out in the elements.
Down the road, Sophia, the unofficial canine mayor of Exeter, sprawled out on the snow-covered sidewalk outside Luna Chics, her owner’s boutique.
The 11-year-old black labrador often accompanies owner Dana De Niro at work and loves to hang out in the snow.
